North Jersey Developmental Center
North Jersey Developmental Center (NJDC) opened in February, 1928. It was known as the “North Jersey Training School” until July, 1983 when the name was officially changed to reflect its current role as a provider of a wide range of habilitation, medical and psychological services for individuals with developmental disabilities. As of December 1, 2010, NJDC’s census was 388 and the average age of its residents was 49.
Located on a 188-acre tract of land in Totowa, Passaic County, NJDC is the northernmost residential developmental center in New Jersey. Its campus-like setting includes 35 buildings that contain 11 different living areas, a school building, a chapel, a healthcare center, a sheltered workshop, a vocational building, an auditorium, and recreational facilities, including a swimming pool.
